What is the ideal wedding? It is a unique as the couple is that makes up the marriage! No doubt, there are many decisions to make. You may be overwhelmed by the suggestions available for the perfect day. Be realistic and reasonable, just like you would for any other major decision. Make this a day that is fondly remembered. To help you, read the following article for some ideas on how to do just that!
If you’re already living with your spouse-to-be and don’t really need housewares for wedding gifts, ask for cash instead. If you include a cute little poem asking people to consider giving you a cash gift instead of something you can’t use, you’ll be saving them the time it takes to shop and helping pay for your honeymoon!
Do not let your bachelor or bachelorette party end too late at night. Many people are sleep deprived the day of their wedding because they stayed up too late the night before. You may even want to consider having your bachelor or bachelorette party the weekend prior to your wedding.
See if you can find a willing helper who can assist you with looking after your equipment and moving it when necessary. They can help you to gather the family and get the perfect photo.
Want a novel idea for your wedding and reception? How about a cruise! More and more people are choosing to take their destination wedding and have it on a boat, and there are many great reasons for that. You’ll find excellent catering, an on-site bar, and they have all the decor and set-up items you need already on deck.
Part of the planning for a destination should include checking out the typical weather for the time you want to get married. It’s not recommended to go to Bermuda during hurricane season, for example. Try to plan for a time where the weather is guaranteed to be sunny but not too hot.
To save money on your wedding, you may want to consider asking a family member or friend to make your cake. Wedding cakes can go for hundreds of dollars, which is an unnecessary expense if you know someone that is good at baking. Perhaps having a family member or friend make your cake can be their wedding present to you!
Do not feel shy to ask the person videotaping your wedding to look at their previous work. You want to make sure you have picked the right videographer for your big day and looking at their prior work can give you an idea of what to expect for your wedding.
When inviting parents to your wedding, consider what time it will be held if they’re planning on bringing their kids. A night-time wedding with a reception that runs into the wee hours of the morning will not work well for children, so either move your ceremony to an earlier time or provide accommodation for children to have a nap during the reception.
Hopefully, the ideas in the article above with help you with some of the many decisions you have to make. Remember to be realistic and reasonable. Do not let the pressure from others cause you to be overwhelmed. Apply the suggestions that fit your circumstances. Make this a day to remember with fondness. Congratulations!
